Increasingly more computing power is demanded for contemporary applications such as multimedia, 3D visualization, and telecommunication. This paper presents a design space exploration (DSE) experience for an embedded VLIW processor that allows finding out the best architecture for given application. The proposed method has been implemented and tested using an image processing chain for direct photo printer. Our results show a considerable improvement in hardware cost and performance. After the best architecture is identified, we applied a technique to optimize the code in VEX system that uses ¿inlining¿ function in order to reduce execution time.
